The Japanese art of Judo is something I am very proud to offer at Higley Fit Martial Arts because while it incorporates many of the submission techniques that are seen in Jiu Jitsu, Judo has a greater focus on the throws or Tachi Waza (standing techniques). In the Judo classes our focus is to warm up and run the classes very traditionally. Everything from the exercises in the warmup, to the Uchikomi’s (repetition judo drills), is true to the art form.
Recently Judo has been showcased in a new light in MMA fights, where there is no use of the traditional Judo Gi. While our Judo classes are always taught in the Gi, at times various techniques may also be demonstrated without the use of the Gi, for those interested in learning how to incorporate these techniques into MMA, or for use in a self defense/street fight situation.
